So there's this Dino Force alpha version...
« on: October 25, 2012, 05:47:19 AM »
I got these in an anonymous email:



Then next day, the following message:

Hello Chris, <erm..?>

We got an alpha version 100% complete from the creator of the game. It's maybe the one and only full complete version of the game. It was kept for about 20 years...

Only few informations were available on Internet and all came from PCM engine fan. As same as only few screenshot published through the same magazine (June 1993).

Then the company closed down before released it, after the middle success of circus light (same man).

If you know someone we should be interested in it, please let them know.

We don't know what we will do with it but it seems that some collectors are looking for it.

Maybe one of the last unreleased / rumor and secret hu card game available on the market.

Best regards.


I have no idea if this is legit or not, but if anyone wants their email address, let me know and I will send it via PM. Long standing/trusted forum members get priority.

I'd certainly be interested in such a game, but not for the thousands of monies some diehard collector is likely willing to pay.  The only way I'd invest that kind of coin is if it really is complete (music and whatnot), it's a decent shewty (I wouldn't expect it to be top tier), and it's running bug free on real hardware; that way there'd be enough interest in pressed discs at a price high enough to recoup the investment.

Do we have the skills to dump it here on the forum? I'd donate (some) to get it if someone can dump it. Would others be interested in contributing even if it meant they wouldn't get the original proto?

After the whole Digital Press Bio Force Ape debacle, I'm always suspicious of people claiming protos..... (eat communism, indeed).

Could  be someone's been reading neo-geo.com a bit to much, and is looking to score big on a proto.

If it is a hoax, they should have picked a more interesting game.

I'm sure there are people here who could do that. It just takes the right equipment.

He sent me the e-mail and I replied to it, which accounts for your "Hi Chris" message.  I'd love to get my hands on this proto and dump it, but I'm not a rich man anymore...

lol yeah, I bet thibaut & co already threw in their 10'000s of euro bids for that. so if its real, the only thing we probably  will ever get to see are some pics and movies with french comments.
